NO MORE GUNS, LET THE CHILDREN GROW UP.
Never been there. Never done that. Can you site sources that crime overall has decreased? Violent crime? Usually, when guns are prohibited, violent crimes increase. One would hope Australia is the exception to the rule, but...?

What advice would you give a younger you?
Very, very well constructed question. Let's go with: "Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now."

What makes a TED talk great to you?
Never. Ever. Apologize. For being yourself. .... If someone doesn't like 'you', if they're 'offended', then you've just filtered out someone you don't really want to talk to... At least for now...

This is extremely, extremely simple. Research all of history where 'arms' have been banned. Then track crime rates, before, during, and after the ban of said arms. That's it. Report back the results and you have your answer. I fully support everyone's right to own, and arm, bears.

What would you say instead of 'God bless you' when someone sneezes?
As with everything. Deconstruct to the extreme. If you can break everything down to a simple '1' or '0', you can grok many things. In this case (we were told), 'God Bless You' is taken from Hoch Deutsch. High German, the original we were told about was 'Gesundeheit'. Or 'Health High'. Or 'Have good health'. In ancient times they thought that a demon took over your soul for the duration of the sneeze, and that a 'blessing' from 'god' would be, well, it wouldn't hurt. What do 'I' say when someone sneezes? I usually stop focusing on whatever I'm preoccupied with. I look at the person. Say 'Gesundheit'. Then check to be sure they're ok. I don't have 5 minutes to spare, I sure do have 5 seconds to 'care'. (Marian Call, Coffee by Numbers, paraphrased). Qyv? No idea what would Qyv's response would be.
